“What if?” It is the question where innovation begins, and few companies have asked it as often and answered it as well as DuPont™ and FilSpec USA.
Recent breakthroughs in fibers and fabrics are transforming these age-old materials into high tech for the first time in history – creating in the process new opportunities for fabric-based startups and entrepreneurs! Fabrics that can see, hear, sense, communicate, store and converts energy, regulate temperature, monitor health and change color will soon be possible.
If you are interested in learning more about the Fabric Revolution and the exciting new opportunities in this space, please join us for the first “Fabric- the New Software” Networking event on Thursday, November 29, 2018 from 6pm-8pm at AFFOA HQ (Advanced Functional Fabrics of America) in Cambridge, MA.
This event is designed to develop, inspire, and connect entrepreneurs interested in transforming the fibers and textiles industry. Attendees will engage with emerging advanced fibers and fabrics first hand, and meet the 2018-2019 cohort of the Advanced Fabric Entrepreneurship Program (AFEP). Speakers and presenters at the event represent some of the current and future leaders, entrepreneurs, and startups in the revolutionary fibers and textiles industry.
